Satellite communication is on the verge of revolutionizing the global telecommunications industry, including India, as new satellite constellations offer unparalleled global coverage and connectivity. India’s recently passed Telecommunications Act (2023) emphasized the need for multi-stakeholder discussions to refine the space policy framework. This will accelerate progress towards opening the space sector to private industry, as envisioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister.

India’s space sector initiative introducing the Space Policy, 2023 allows Non-Governmental Entities (NGEs) to participate fully across all space activities. Union Minister of State for Science & Technology, Dr. Jitendra Singh emphasized, “The private sector plays critical role in advancing India’s space technology and exploration efforts”. To facilitate this participation, the Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre (IN-SPACe) was established, which actively supports private companies through various schemes and initiatives.

To address these challenges and opportunities, the ITU-APT Foundation of India (IAFI) is hosting the India Space Policy Conference 2024 (ISPC-24) on May 27-28 in New Delhi. This two-day event will convene key industry leaders, policymakers, and experts for a critical discussion on shaping India’s space communications sector, to propel India’s position in the global satellite communications landscape.

ISPC-24 promises a dynamic program featuring thought-provoking keynote speeches, interactive panel discussions, in-depth technical sessions, and engaging workshops. Attendees will discuss the latest advancement in satellite communication systems, space-based applications, remote sensing, space exploration, and satellite navigation. This immersive experience will provide valuable networking and collaboration opportunities, allowing attendees to gain insights and establish connections with industry leaders and peers.

ISPC-24 provides a platform for participants to exchange ideas, showcase their research, and discuss challenges and opportunities in the ever-evolving field of satellite and space communication technology.
